#WokWednesday at PF Chang's | 11 Magnolia Lane {Giveaway opportunity at the end of the post, so don’t forget to scroll down!}

We’ve just hit the time of year when things get BUSY–busy, but fun. Our calendars are starting to fill up rapidly with all kinds of social activities, and my to-do list grows daily.

We also have lots of opportunities for hospitality around our house.  Usually we know our guests are coming, but sometimes they just drop in or happen to still be around at dinnertime.

I like to keep a few “easy” meals in my freezer for nights when we’re busy (or exhausted), so I was happy to give P.F. Chang’s Home Menu a try, although I am VERY PICKY about frozen meals and tend to cook from scratch most days.

Last week, my husband and I had a rare night alone at home.  So I headed over to the grocery store and took my time with my selection…they have an impressive variety of appetizers, main dishes, and sides and it was a hard choice.  I weighed all my options–beef, chicken, shrimp, vegetables, noodles, and here’s what I came home with:

I popped the egg rolls in the oven and started the chicken on the stove while I got some rice cooking.  P.F. Chang’s does sell rice and I certainly would buy it if I really needed a break, but that night I made my own.

It was nice to go from freezer to dinner in under 15 minutes!

I threw a handful of chopped green onions on top for color and crunch, and opened a bottle of chilled chardonnay.  We decided to dine in front of the fire–decadence!

We both really enjoyed our meal.  My husband was happy that the Signature Spicy Chicken lived up to its name and was spicy (he loves that sauce!) and I was happy at the high quality of the chicken–no fat or gristle to be found.  Like I said, I’m really picky about my frozen meals, and I would be completely comfortable serving this to guests. The portions are perfect for 2, and we just ate from the same platter–what a fun way to spend our Wok Wednesday!

Now, here’s what we have for you:  P.F. Chang’s is giving away a Wok Wednesday Kit that includes chopsticks, a wok, and tableware.  To enter, all you need to do is leave a comment letting me know how you’d celebrate #WokWednesday (besides taking the night off from cooking–always a good thing!).

Good luck, and thanks for stopping by–

  1. I love making Asian food at home! The hubby is sick, so I am making him homemade won ton soup for dinner. I make my own won tons from scratch and keep a supply in the freezer for cold/flu season.

    For Wok Wednesday I would celebrate with my grandson who is 8 years old. He has never had food cooked in a wok but he loves to try new things. He would really enjoy helping to prepare our dinner as well..

  3. I would have date night at home in front of the fireplace to celebrate my husband’s another paper written! He’s writing a lot of papers at the school he is attending. This would be fun.

    Our favorite local Asian restaurant was sold to new people….sadly, not our favorite any longer.
    This would be a great time for me to give P.F. Chang’s Home Menu a try!!

  5. I would celebrate wok Wednesday with my son who loves exploring new foods!

  6. My hubby is a football coach and is gone VERY long hours. With the season finally over, we are free to enjoy dinner together again and this sounds like a fun meal! He loves spicy and we both love Chinese-thanks for a great idea!!

  7. I work on Wednesdays and don’t get home until about 8PM. I would love to fix something thats quick,easy, and tastes good. I would eat it in front of the TV, possibly while catching up on The Walking Dead episodes.

  8. This looks wonderful! Definitely a step up from our opening an can of Vegetable Beef Soup or Sirloin Burger Soup, adding sherry and/or brandy and serving it over rice. Times have changed!

  9. I would share this meal with my husband, Mark. It would give me a chance to play all day sewing & crafting & not worry about fixing dinner.

  10. I’d pull out my pretty Asian-styled, turquoise glazed dishes (from Target) that I recently re-discovered (tucked away in the far reaches of a kitchen cabinet) and put finally them to good use! Yeah!

  11. We like doing #WokWednesday with P.F.Changs Mongolian Beef and Egg Rolls, alongside steamed veggies and rice. Makes for a great “take out fake out” date night at home.

  12. after a busy week of running around until you just can’t go anymore this is a wonderful “date” idea. Not to mention it seems like something even my cooking challenged self can pull off!

  13. I have tried these frozen meals by PF Changs and they are delicious….hmm Wednesday would definitely be a great change of pace from all the cooking I do during the week!…

  14. We have a Mexican night and a pizza night, but we have never done a night centered around Asian food. Wok Wednesday would be a great addition to our routine. There are so many ways to eat Asian food that you could literally eat it in some form or another every night and not tire of it. Maybe we could buy the girls a Kimono to make it more festive

  15. Thank you for visiting my blog! I just liked you on Facebook ! Sheila
